Well, the Stones have had a long and varied career. They've played just every genre of music, including disco.(Miss You) Blues was only one of the musical styles they dabbled in and I guess they just do what they want now.
It might also be cuz Blues is genre that it takes a lot of creativity to make it sound fresh. It's follows very basic rhythm patterns. It's like learning to play the harmonica. Just about anyone can play one but very few can play it well. Maybe the Stones just don't have the energy anymore.
Remember "You Gotta Move" off Sticky Fingers? I heard it took the Stones a long time to get it to sound like that. When you hear it, it sounds strikingly simple. Most people don't know how hard it is to sound that primitive. Most musicians don't even try. They do like Michael Jackson did. He tagged himself the "King of Pop" (as in the king of what's popular) and took it to the bank. Jackson wouldn't dare do a Blues song.
I just love The Rolling Stones bluesy stuff mixed in with Keith's Chuck Berry riffs. And the stuff was brilliant. Yes, I remember "You Gotta Move" I even have a live version of it recorded for the BBC television in 1971. As far I know, no other rock band was ever as good as The Rolling Stones in their prime. I do not think the blues is that simple to play because in order to do it properly, you have to feel the emotion. There is a long unreleased jam by The Stones called, "Still A Fool" that is mindboggling. I really think stuff like "Emotional Rescue" and "She's So Cold" is total garbage compared to what The Rolling Stones were truly capable of.

BTW, Michael Jackson's one duet with Mick Jagger on the mid eighties single, "State Of Shock" was horrible. Total garbage. It was even worse than Jagger's hilarious duet with David Bowie on their single, "Dancing In The Street" The old video of the two of them bumping butts still makes me crack up.

I think "Dancing In The Streets" out-gayed even gay videos!

Atrocious!

Things like that really show everyone how different Mick and Keith are. Keith wouldn't do something fruity like that for a million bucks!

The Blues isn't that hard to play. That's the beauty of it. The thing is that unless you have a knack for it,(Like those guys that grew up around it in the Delta) it sounds inferior.

I still think my analogy of learning to play a harmonica fits. Anyone can pick one up and make some noise on it but takes genuine soul to make it moan.

You just can't fake it.

MJ would've mucked it up big time.

“Sticky Fingers” was an example of the post-Brian albums the Stones released while in their prime. It’s incredibly varied.

It had….

Hard rock:“Bitch” and "Brown Sugar"

Soft rock:“Wild Horses” and “Sister Morphine”

Blues:“I Got The Blues” and “You Gotta Move”

Country:“Dead Flowers”

Jazz:“Can You Hear Me Knocking”

Psychedelic:“Moonlight Mile”

It was as if the Rolling Stones could do anything!

Mick Jagger stopped being a bi sexual when aids was really killing people.

Jagger pushed the limits sexually and probably got bored with just sleeping with just women. But I could cass less what he does in his personal life. Remember The Stones in the early eighties with Jagger on stage with penis balloons? He doesn't act that way anymore.

Yeah, Mick was pretty fruity.

I'm very picky about my blues. I don't like all of it but then, I don't like all rock n roll either. Blues music comes from way deep within the soul. And Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones had it at one time. They were amazing. I like the rock n roll energy and blues feeling mixed together. No one seems to be doing it anymore.

"Tumblin' Dice"
"Honky Tonk Woman"
"Sweet Little Rock N Roller"
"Love In Vain"
"Gimme Shelter"
"Sympathy For The Devil"
"Stray Cat Blues"

And on and on....

Quite frankly, it couldn't have gotten any better.

I have to say that despite how shocked you can't help but be by Mick and David's butt bumping in "Dancing In The Streets," it's actually a pretty lively version of the song. Mick and David don't sound that bad together.

Its probably best not to actually see that video, the way the song takes a back seat to how freaky these two are acting.

We can only hope its just a performance, but I think you're right, I think Mick straddled both sides of the fence. I know Bowie did.

Not John though.

When John used feminine gestures, you knew it was put on.

Like his "cripple routine."

Like I said, you couldn't get Keith or John to do something as fruity as that.

Mick was a "socialite," a real slut when he got into town. Keith was disgusted by Mick's flamboyant image.

Its a lot like what happened to Rod Stewart when he went "Hollywood" with Brett Eckland.

I didn't say that their cover of "Dancing In The Street" was badly done. I think if I never seen the video, the song was actually fairly decent but it was the eighties. And most eighties music and fashion has not aged well. I do not care what Bowie, Jagger or John Lennon might have done in their personal lives. When I think of The Stones best work though, their eighties period certainly wasn't it. "Tattoo You" was probably their best at that time with some strong songs and some weaker cuts mixed in. After that, The Rolling Stones were just putting out product. In my opinion, they never matched their peak years between 1968-1971.

I don't think John Lennon was fruity, Kracker. If anything his supposed affair with Brian Epstein in Spain was a one time thing and certainly did not reach the level of Mick Jagger. Totally different circumstances.

Out of all the members of The Rolling Stones, Charlie Watts is the most impressive. Even as an old man, he never misses a beat. He was never a flashy drummer but he is still solid. I've heard that Charlie has even played on some Jazz recordings when he isn't touring with The Stones. Keith can still play guitar and I have one of his solo albums called, "Talk Is Cheap" which is a million times better than what Mick Jagger has done on his own. I think Mick probably has too much power within the band's most recent work, which is why I've been quite disappointed by them. Still, The Stones have been putting out some great vault material in recent years like the new "Crossfire Hurricane" DVD and other projects...
